5 Powerful Natural Remedies for Frozen Shoulder...
I have frozen shoulder and it's extremely painful! Are there any natural relief remedies or cures for this condition that work?
Frozen shoulder (also known as adhesive capsulitis) occurs when the fibers in the shoulder joint tighten up and restrict movement. It's a very common problem, but thankfully, quite an easy one to remedy.
Here's 5 of the best natural and home remedies you might want to consider using...
#1. Magnesium and Boron: Magnesium and boron are two of the most important nutrients for joint and muscle fiber health (yes, they're even more important than calcium). A deficiency of these essential trace minerals will result in joint and muscle stiffness and even a total "seizing" of the joint.
To get your daily supply of magnesium a transdermal magnesium spray
will be required. These are relatively cheap to purchase and last for months. You can also easily make your own for even less cost. Here's what you do...
-What You’ll Need
1/2 cup of Magnesium Chloride Flakes (like these
1/2 cup of Distilled Water
Spray Bottle to Store the Mixture
Boil the ½ cup of distilled water and tip into the glass bowl
Add the ½ cup of magnesium chloride flakes
Stir the mixture until the magnesium chloride flakes are dissolved.
Leave to cool completely then store in the spray bottle
-How to Use
Spray the oil on your arms, legs, and stomach once per day using 10-15 sprays per application. You’ll find that it may tingle on your skin, especially the first few times you use it. This is normal and means it’s doing its job. Leave on for at least an hour before showering and using a natural skin moisturizer afterwards.
For your daily dose of boron, the simplest and dirt cheap way is to mix up a specifically made batch of Borax and water and drink this spaced throughout the day. Now, before you get put off by this (borax is actually extremely safe when used as directed in the "Borax Conspiracy" article below), please take the time to read this incredible article in full...

. You will also find the specific dosage recommendations, along with how to make up this powerful concoction. And here's one of the safe Borax brands that we recommend too if you're interested... Borax - Sodium Borate
#2. Vitamin D and Vitamin K2: Both of these nutrients are crucial for keeping the calcium in your bones (and joints), so supplementing with vitamin D and K2 is definitely one of the standard "must do's" for successfully treating frozen shoulder. Vitamin D also regulates your hormones - and normalized hormones means better cell regeneration in the joints and tendons. Thankfully, vitamin D and vitamin K2
can easily be bought together. You need at least 5000 IU's of vitamin D (combined with at least 50 micrograms of K2) each day for optimal results. So make sure you get this amount each and every day.
#3. Tumeric and Ginger. Tumeric and ginger are two of the best natural anti-inflammatories and pain relievers in existence! When you have frozen shoulder, you'll also have pain and chronic inflammation. And relieving the pain and inflammation is paramount for the healing process to occur. So be sure to make up a tasty tumeric milk tea and drink twice daily for best results. Here's an easy recipe you can follow that doesn't require a lot of prep time... Turmeric Tea Golden Milk Recipe
#4. DMSO: Many sufferers of frozen shoulder have received excellent results by simply rubbing some DMSO on their shoulder, morning and night. DMSO is especially good if you have nerve damage causing your frozen shoulder. Just make sure the DMSO you purchase is pharmaceutical grade (such as these ones
) or it wont be as effective.
#5. Acupuncture and Cold Showers: Acupuncture helps to eliminate the specific trigger points in the joint that cause frozen shoulder - and it works a treat! Taking regular cold showers or using a nice cold compress on the shoulder joint also provides some terrific relief. Use both in conjunction with each other for best results.
In addition to these, don't forget to do some regular stretching. Just make sure you don't over do it though. Pain is a warning sign that something isn't right, so if it begins to hurt excessively, be sure to back off and lighten the stretching.
So hopefully these tips and recommendations help you out with your frozen shoulder.
Good luck and all the best to you!
